    Protector is one of the most inventive comics on the shelves in how it blends things. For most sci-fi series, it is foundational to avoid the indigenous nature of people. But it is constantly imbuing the storytelling sensibilities of a fable into the world, and personally I'm more a fan of that than anything. This series is quickly becoming one of the favorite sci-fi books because it allows for the notion of belief in a new future. Yes, it's not hopeful, but it is one that has survived. Let's hope we survive ours now. Read Full Review

    At times it feels like Protector feels like its going for too many genres at once. But, once it focuses on one specifically it works out amazingly. Plus I really like Dark Lords (The Robot) attitude. Hopefully, we have more moments of him talking. Read Full Review
